As discussed in the Reading Around the Globe series, the truth is that book lovers and bloggers outside of the US/UK/AUS are not afforded the same privileges as those of us that live in countries with English publishers. It isn’t about the quality of their reviews or how engaged their audience is with their content: these fantastic bloggers are not even considered for physical ARCs from the publishers due to the shipping costs (eARCs are also country-restricted, but that isn’t the focus of this post).
As a blogger living in the United States, I recognize my privilege and want to use my it to help international bloggers and
hopefully inspire change. I am so excited to be launching this feature after over a month and a half of planning!
